Molo residents, in Nakuru county are decrying the high cost of living after street kids were found slaughtering a dog with the aim of making a meal with the meat.
A report filed by NTV indicates that the street kids opted for dog meat on grounds that they didn’t have money to buy food.
The kids said that they have been going through a rough time due to the high cost of living with no one at their rescue.
“I live close to this building so I was passing by I saw fire and got interested to see what was inside. When I entered I saw dog bones and beside it I found a kid removing pieces of meat out of it as he consumed. When I asked him the reason he clearly stated that there is no food and the cost of living is high,” narrated Simon Munene, a resident of Molo town.
Simon called upon the government to come to the aid of the street kids and provide employment opportunities so they can be able to put food on the table and afford basic needs.
“The government is in a position to help these kids even though they are from the streets it should help them, to get food or even admit them to rehabilitation centers and churches so that we can rescue these kids from eating dogs,” Munene added.
